Glowing Cocktails

Did you know that Tonic Water glows under black light? According to a few online sources I discovered today, the bitter flavoring of tonic water is due to the presence of quinine, which glows blue-white when placed under a black light.

I think my signature drink for my Halloween party will certainly have a touch of Tonic! And, for those that do not, I plan to make some ice cubes out of Tonic, because, those are supposed to glow too!

I am going to give this a test try and let you know!

Cool! There is an entire article in MS Living about things that glow under blacklights. Some of the stuff they did looks amazing!

Wow, as much as I drink vodka & tonic I should have known something like this :)

Now that is awesome! I am so pissed at my hubby for not wanting to go the party, ugh!
